This imposing building (1913), largely paid for by Andrew Carnegie, houses the International Court of Justice, the Permanent Court of Arbitration, and the International Law Academy. Its furnishings were donated by countries around the world. The palace is open for guided tours only. Reserve a tour at least a day or two ahead of time (tel. 070/302-4137; fax 070/302-4234; email@example.com). If you can do it a week ahead, you'll have a better chance of getting a place. English is sure to be spoken by the guide but it can't hurt to confirm this for your chosen time, and note that the Peace Palace's museum is only visited on the 11am and 3pm tours.
